When the Day is Done: Afternoon Links – January 29, 2013

Going to keep this post light, with one major exception.

Ok, so I love me some Locos Tacos from Taco Bell. For those who don’t know, it’s a taco with a classic Nacho Cheese Doritos’ shell. Yum. And guess what? They’re gonna make a Cool Ranch flavored version! – Via BuzzFeed’s Twitter

Sir Paul McCartney, one of my living idols, is such a young soul — I love the way he uses technology. He’s already using Twitter’s Vine video app. See if you can name the song yourself: http://vine.co/v/bJjdTLBnwx1 (Hint: It’s from Band on the Run)

For the ladies: I remember’s 1994’s classic Diet Coke break commercial, and now 18 years later they are reviving it with a twist and it has become a viral sensation. – Via Mashable’s Twitter post

Fascinating article about the negative impact music streaming services have had on artist royalties. Music sales ain’t what they used to be. Via New York Times h/t (heard through) Tim O’Reilly’s Twitter post

And finally, on a somber note, today marks 27 years since the Challenger disaster, which is all the more impacting now that the Space Shuttle program is now history as well. I was in Ms. Fernandez’s 2nd grade classroom and someone walked in and whispered the news into her ear. She briefly told us what had happened and we all stood in a moment of silence. First major national tragedy I could remember.
